THE RUM DIARY
MARSHALL BELL (Donovan) began his acting career later in life. Where he was
introduced to the industry through his wife, the veteran costume designer Milena
Canonero, herself a winner of three Academy AwardsÂ® and five time nominee. He
previously worked as a consultant, teaching executives how to improve their
speaking skills. His most recent acting roles include the critically acclaimed
Capote opposite Philip Seymour Hoffman, the prisoner of war drama Rescue Dawn,
and the family film Nancy Drew.
Bell met Johnny Depp many years ago while they were represented by the same
agency. He made his motion picture debut in the drama Birdy. Depp saw Bell in
Birdy and asked him to appear in The Brave which Depp directed.
One of Bell's earliest roles was his most infamous: the creepy Coach Schneider
of A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge. The role that gained him
the most recognition was as resistance leader George / Kuato in Total Recall.
The role re-united him with Arnold Schwarzenegger, as he'd played a hit man in
the comedy Twins. Other film roles include a frightening homeless man
terrorizing Bill Paxton in the movie The Vagrant, Gordies' emotionally distant
father in Stand By Me, and General Owen in the movie Starship Troopers,
re-uniting him with Total Recall director Paul Verhoeven. He's appeared in many
TV series, including G vs. E, Wiseguy, The X-Files, Tales from the Crypt, Hill
Street Blues, House, and Deadwood.
